Fantom G-Force MegaDisk MDE2000 2TB USB 2.0 / eSATA  2 Disk RAID Array

5 out of 5 eggs Solid drive, great value 05/27/2009

This review is from: Fantom G-Force MegaDisk MDE2000 2TB USB 2.0 / eSATA 2 Disk RAID Array

Pros: My unit was quiet and cool, nicely packaged in an attractive metal case. Was pleasantly surprised to find two 1TB Western Digital Caviar Green drives inside. While those are not the highest performing drives around, they are solid and reliable. Switching RAID states via the little switch on the back is a bit unusual, but it was explained well in the manual and it isn't something you're likely to do everyday, so it worked for me. The various RAID states give this drive a lot of flexibility.

Cons: Failed to make me coffee in the morning.

SoNNeT TSATAII-E4P PCI Express SATA II (3.0Gb/s) Controller Card

2 out of 5 eggs great performance, poor reliability 09/04/2008

This review is from: SoNNeT TSATAII-E4P PCI Express SATA II (3.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros: great transfer speeds, easy installation into my Mac G5, loads of SATA headroom

Cons: I had this card in service for 14 months and it began to fail intermittently. At first i thought it was the drives till i replaced them with known good drives. I ordered a new card (with a completely different layout and chip set as compared to the board from 14 months ago, BTW) and all is well again. A 14-month life for an interface card is lousy.

Other Thoughts: It offers the best SATA performance going, hope the new chipset brings a lot more reliability.
